The main and overriding goal of this campaign is to facilitate computer science in becoming a main stream subject in primary and secondary schools by 2014. 

 

The biggest obstacle to this is the gap in skills and confidence that exists in schools and so to enable teachers to deliver computer science lessons we are calling upon our coders to lend a hand and help teachers to learn to code.

 

The hope is that beyond teaching a few skills a great deal more can be gained from the relationship between a school and an IT professional from giving a realistic perspective to pupils to the creation of engageing and relevent lesson content.

This scheme is in its infancy so look out for additional resources. Our FAQs section gives some more specific information about the scheme and how to get involved.
